Maybe, maybe not.

What hardware do you use?
What is the configuration of your current kernel?

My parents' house has a DSL connection.  The IP address is assigned
via DHCP.  A Cisco 677 device connects the phone cabling to the
computer's ethernet card.  This Ethernet-ATM bridge does all the layer
2 bridging itself.  All the machine connected to it needs is the
driver for the ethernet card.


Emacs is a nice operating system, it lacks a decent editor though
